Learn about Avail's Nocturia Clinical Trials


Visiting the toilet because of nocturiaCurrently, there are a number of Nocturia clinical trials being conducted around the United States. Nocturia is a condition which leaves a significant number of people struggling with the effects of interrupted sleep and frequent trips to the bathroom.

Unfortunately, for some people, the use of behavioral therapy and other common treatments for nocturia are not enough to control this condition. Through new clinical trials on nocturia, researchers are discovering new ways to regulate the bladder at night, as well as better methods of diagnosing more serious medical conditions which could be causing these night-time urinations. If you have tried all of the more traditional methods, and you’re still dealing with symptoms of nocturia, then it may be time to try something new.

Nocturia is a common condition which can cause a person to awaken several times during the night in order to pass urine. While many pregnant women and senior citizens will experience the symptoms of nocturia, this disorder can occur at any age during a person’s lifetime. Still, most people will not have to deal with nocturia until after the age of 60. This medical condition can develop in both men and women, but the causes of nocturia do vary from person to person.

What Causes Nocturia?

Pregnancy is the underlying cause of nocturia for many women, but it can also be easily triggered by a pelvic organ prolapse or menopause. For men, an enlarged prostate is often the cause of their frequent nighttime urges. Medical researchers are still identifying other causes of nocturia, but there are a number of things that you should try to avoid. For example, some people choose to drink an abundant amount of liquid before they decide to go to bed. This along with alcohol and caffeine consumption can easily contribute to your nocturia. Also, as people get older, their bladder’s liquid capacity can be reduced, which will result in more frequent trips to the bathroom during the day and night.

If you feel like you have been experiencing the symptoms of nocturia, then you should certainly set up an appointment with your doctor. When it comes to this particular disorder, medical researchers have been able to identify two conditions that are associated with nocturia (these are global polyuria and nocturnal polyuria). Global polyuria is used to refer to cases where there is an overproduction of urine during both the daytime and nighttime. Then there is nocturnal polyuria, which as you may have guessed, refers to cases where there is an overproduction of urine only during the night.

In some cases, frequent visits to the bathroom at night could be a sign that there is a much more serious underlying issue. A number of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and more can cause people to experience nocturia. As these diseases negatively impact the normal functioning of the human body, this will often trigger the need to urinate over the course of the night.

The nocturia clinical trials taking place in Florida are testing new treatment methods, which are being developed by pharmaceutical and bio-technical companies. They are designed specifically to test the safety and efficacy of treatments for humans. By volunteering for our fully supervised nocturia clinical study, you will be helping scientists develop better ways to combat this common disorder.

The type of study being performed by Avail Clinical Research directly reflects your involvement. Sometimes, participating in a nocturia clinical trial in Florida is as simple as agreeing to let our researchers have a copy of your test results, but most are more involved and would require you to take some tests and visit our clinic. Participants are compensated for time and travel, and the study related care, including physical examinations, laboratory services and study medicines are all provided.
